Basic Facts About Steve''s Custom Fishing Rod Handles
All handles are quality hand crafted and coated with 2 coats of Rod Builders Epoxy finish. Sizes are average, wood tones vary. When ordering custom handles, please keep in mind hole sizes, size reel seats you are using and color tones you are looking for.
I get different woods from people all the time. I can make different styles and sizes to fit your hand. Thread inlays, logos, fish decals, feather laminates are available by request. I recommend softer woods for handles; some wood is too dense / heavy. They work fine for ice handles, inserts,etc.
Custom wood rod handles are just like custom rods, there’s no end to the possibilities. There are also advantages to wood, they will usually out last the rod, and they can be reused. If they get dinged up over time, you can give them a coat and they look like new again. Some people ask if they get slippery, but if your hand is wet you actually get a better grip. The main advantage is the sensitivity factor. The wood becomes more part of the blank.
All the big rod manufactures over the last couple decades want to claim to have the most sensitive rods on the market. So they are taking this expensive technology down to a piece of spongy cork in your hand.
A step backwards. Wood is becoming more and more popular especially for walleye and fly rods. I built my new fly rod with Spalded Maple which is on my home page. I love it, you can really feel the line pick up and load up.
Wood burning is available, prices will vary.
